For everyone who hasn’t learned it yet and to review the fundamentals:
Instead of being a diet, intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that alternates between periods of eating and fasting.
The intermittent fasting idea typically entails a 16-hour fasting window and an 8-hour eating window.
However, the 14: 10 fasting and eating interval is preferable for women.
Here are some things to consider when it comes to what to eat during the fasting window:
Drink water with rock salt and cinnamon.
Both cinnamon and rock salt aid in controlling blood sugar levels, and rock salt also keeps your body’s electrolyte balance in check, preventing weariness.
Generally speaking, there are five to six meals each day—three little and three medium-sized ones—and the goal is to stay hydrated—not occasionally , but always.
My suggested eating routine!
|8:00 am||Morning drink (Cinnamon and Rock salt water; in fasting window)|
|9:00 am||1st light meal to open fast.|
|4:30 pm||Evening snacks|
According to the advised dietary plan, Let’s start by talking about some light and filling breakfast options.
Meal Options to Break the Fast.
|Option 1||5 soaked almonds and 1 tsp. soaked raisins.|
|Option 2||1 soaked walnut and 1 soaked fig|
|Option 3||Seasonal fruit: 1 cup papaya. pear or apple.|
|Option 4||Steamed carrot and beetroot (whole juice)|
I want to make a suggestion regarding the pre-meal selections before we go on to the main meals of the day.
For that, Pour a glass of water over 1 teaspoon of Methi Dana.
The next day, split the water and offered methi into three portions to be eaten before each big meal.
One serving of any seasonal fruit, some steamed vegetables, and a hummus and mustard sauce dip are suitable as morning snacks.
Let’s swiftly move on to the week’s breakfast, lunch, and supper selections to help you plan your meals.
